Hey! How did THEY know I was a "Fat Fuck?"

Looking at his list of nicknames in the source, this guy seems pretty dedicated to the classic school of insult comedy, wherein application of "fuckface" to a randomly selected audience member is the pinnacle o' wit.

I am Towel Boy, which is interesting, considering my sex...

"That Bastard" I should get a nametag that says that. I like that. =)
But if I use my birth name, it says "Gimp."

Anybody here have a nickname in real life? Interesting phenomenon...Some people at my work have nicknames, but how well do you have to know someone to use their nickname? ("Mandy" for "Amanda" doesn't count.) Sports guys get the best nicknames.

You think those guys have cool nicknames? Check 70s Jamaican (cricket) fast-bowling legend Michael Holding, aka The Whispering Death...

Bifter, was Michael Holding one of the duo mentioned in Brian Johnston's famous cricket commentating gaffe?

"The batsman's Holding, the bowler's Willie."

That's the fella! :-) (other way round though - the bowler was Holding the batsman's Willie... erm...)

Huh?

What a piece of crap. Look at the source. Bleah.

Hmm. Not digging it. These things were around all over the shop a long time ago - prison bitch name generator, mobster name generator, contemporary dance name generator. If they ever succeeded at all it was on the creativity and amusingness of the names chosen for the list and the occasional amusing serendipity of right name with right person. These are just universally offensive.

So, you're *not* an ugly boy?

sugar hips?

Well, that's how they got that way, but erm, yeah.

Look at the source. It basically adds up the letters in your name, then picks a name out of an array. About as interesting as finding out your checksum, or if your name == 666.

Shadowkeeper do you realize that they ask for you Social Security Number and your mothers Madien name. There is no way i would give out that info. You would have to be a foo... you should remove that link. Mr. is stealing peoples info.

My real-life work nickname is my MeFi screenname.

Go here. Search for "batshit".

aj100: Um, the information you put into the form doesn't actually get sent anywhere, so it's perfectly safe to put in any information you like.

Looking at the JavaScript, it's pretty obvious that someone is doing things the hard way... someone seriously needs to clue that dude in to the charCodeAt method of the String object (see matchLtr())

I tried this thing the first day it was posted on MeFi and ended up getting the same answer I got today. And I am still confused... I am Nipples hear me roar.
